Just bought a new Android phone today, and I'm looking to make sure I get the most out of my phone when it comes to making sure that my data is protected. What applications do you use and recommend to cover your phone in tin foil.

So my s7 just broke and is being sent off for repair, they're expecting to have it for a month and I'm forced to use my old iPhone 5. Don't get me wrong I don't really mind apple phones but my s7 allowed a lot more customisation in terms of wallpapers and stuff. Does anyone know a way I could do that with an iPhone 5
